Over the past year, many states have introduced measures that would prohibit colleges and universities from withholding transcripts due to unpaid debts. Withholding transcripts is a key tool in the process by which colleges and universities communicate with students about owed balances.


COHEAO has been actively monitoring each state for new transcript withholding legislation and have summarized each bill.  An initial memo was provided to COHEAO members in mid-May, due to some inaccuracies, recent updates and additional feedback and information, COHEAO is releasing this revised, current memo.
